Due South - art and vid appreciation post!  
I thought I'd throw out some art and vids I love. I figured that since a few of you showed interest in checking out the show, I might as well start with some visuals before doing fic recs.

I think this fandom is a little slim in these areas, which is why they're combined here, but by all means add stuff you love and rec me places, because my art section is pitiful. I think one drawback is that older fandoms are more sprawled out. Good lord look at Star Trek TOS;a  good portion of the fandom isn't even available online. At least this show existed when there was internet to be had at all.

Hee! I'm not sure if this is supposed to be shippy or not, but I do love cute Fraser and Vecchio stuff. Even if Vecchio kind of looks like a mix of Vecchio and Detective Louie Gardino.

by leyna55, and of course it's lovely as hell. I can just imagine Fraser and RayK up in Canada during the summer months, chilling out and stuff.

I love Ray's skinniness and how he's sort of plucking Fraser's hat from his head. <3

Eee! Look at their curvy selves! 

For more awesome art, basically check out all that j_s_cavalcante has ever done. Her lj banner is from one of my favorite F/K stories, Juggling Act, and all of her art is amazing (more recent stuff in this post), like this:

This is a cute little graphic thing that's basically the Due South gang as high school students sending notes. I'm always amused by the paper each one uses and how lifelike they look.

VIDS (all F/K unless noted)

This one isn't spectacular, but it gives newbies a gist of why F/K is so slashy.

Every other vid you have to download. The fandom is allergic to streaming sites, what can I say? :)

Goody Two Shoes (gen) FAVORITE Due South vid. It fits Fraser so well and I love its premise of how exasperating Fraser is to both Rays. And that's something rare too, a vid that focuses on all seasons and both Rays. Plus it's just hilarious and has superb editing.

Fallen Leaves (gen) a look at the criminals and victims through the first couple of seasons. I already loved this song, and I was surprised that it happened to fit so well with the source.

Better Off  YES. Fast-paced, brilliant editing, and it turned me onto Guster. (btw, also did an EXCELLENT Sylar/Mohinder vid. Fuck I loved that pairing.)

Be Gentle This one is just cute and I like how it shows Ray's lingering Stella issues.

Can't Stop This Oh lord, I love this one. Kind of sexy, a lot of fun.

You've Got a Friend in Me (Fraser + Dief) DIEF VID! TOY STORY SONG! So freaking cute, love it.

Zebra Favorite Ray vid ever. It's like the song was made for him.

Also, the song I'm listening to in this post? Was written for Fraser. For god's sake, the first lyrics are 'Daddy's ghost behind you/sleeping dog beside you'. Hello, Bob Fraser and Dief. I wanted to fit music in here, but I figure this post is big enough and most of the songs I associate with this fandom are either in the show itself or in the vids listed. I kind of want to do a vid to River by Akron/Family, but I'm lazy and have a million other projects.

***sineala linked me to stuff I'd forgotten about and stuff I haven't even seen here, so everyone thank her kindly!

okay. So I've seen like two or three epiosdes so far and yeah, WANT. So I'm looking forward to devouring thease once I've seen moar of the show.

(I did a little bit of googleing. There seems to be two rays. This confuses me.)

\o/ I'm so happy it's caught on!

Okay, the Ray Conundrum. :P Basically, the first actor left the show, so they decided to bring in a wholly new actor, and instead of pretending that the new actor was the same Ray Vecchio, they wrote it in the show that the first Ray (Vecchio) went undercover for the mob, so this new guy who looks nothing like him (Kowalski) is brought in to go undercover as Vecchio in his place. It's wildly implausible, but they pull it off with good humor and I really love the series finale because they get the first Ray back and so we get to see both Rays interact. It'll make 100% more sense once you get to season 3.
